Snow = furniture "switch-a-roo"...


 O.K. friends...for those of you that live north of KY - over a foot of snow is no biggie - but for those of us in the great bluegrass state - a foot of snow shuts down the town!  I would have to think back to my childhood (30+ years ago) to remember a snowfall like this!  I'd say we have about 15 inches and that just doesn't happen here- well, except once every few decades ;-)

 But...I'm not complaining - I LOVE snow - always have...always will!

This is a picture of the cabin outside my bedroom window early this morning.  The snow ended up covering the bottom railing of the fence.

 A peaceful look off the front porch...
 

My young man had to get out in it - unfortunately, the snow was so light and fluffy - you couldn't even make a snowball - bummer!



But when you are stuck inside - you get to do things you've been thinking about but hadn't made the time.  So I'm talking about this lil' corner in my kitchen.  Talk about neglected...it just looked pitiful - I mean I even had a cardboard box of mail under the table - sad.

So I cleaned off the table and was going do something different to the top but...
 I realized I've got to many shelves all lined up - it was looking way to busy so I figured I'd just shuffle the furniture...
 So a simple "switch-a-roo" did the trick BUT...that table was just out of scale there so I shopped the house and found one in the landing that fit much better...
 I love the legs on this table - it is simply made of tree limbs with a distressed top.

 I added a chalkboard, a letter and a few of my favorite kitchen things...including....
 a scale that was a gift from my mom -filled with Halos - goodness, I love these things...
 ...a little spring green in the form of fake bulbs in a old wire basket...

 I decorated the hutch with some simple yard sale wicker plates and some of my white pitchers and platters.


 ...And there you have it - my lazy snow day rearrange.




I even managed to hang my "FARM" letters today - which I've had since Christmas.


Simply being home - the main reason I LOVE SNOW DAYS!

Cathy,

It looks beautiful... I hope all is well. Glad you got a snow day. It's cold here too.

Hugs from Oklahoma,

Your switch-a-roo looks great. Love your color choices in the room. I think the green in the scales gives a nice pop of color.

I love your rearrange. Those are wonderful snowy day things to do. Love looking out your window and seeing the cabin.
I am glad we drove through KY before you got snow because I know your state doesn't have the snow equipment we do to take care of the roads, etc.
Hope you have a good week- xo Diana

Cathy, I love your changes. And your chalk art is fantastic. I love doing it - but I'm not very good at it! Do you still have snow? We sure had some great snow and had a very fun day of sledding on our hilltop - I've been wanting to do that since we moved here 4 years ago and FINALLY we had enough snow!!! :-) - Dori -
